Case Overview

FeganScott filed a class action lawsuit on behalf individuals who used Roundup in agricultural or commercial contexts.

According to the suit, Bayer AG, parent company of Monsanto, failed to appropriately and adequately inform and warn consumers of the serious and dangerous risks associated with the use and exposure to glyphosate and Roundup. The suit claims that glyphosate and Roundup have long been associated with the development of numerous forms of cancer, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL).

Significantly, the suit alleges that Mansanto continued to make broad and sweeping

statements suggesting that Roundup was, and is, safer than ordinary household

items such as table salt. The complaint argues that Mansanto have claimed and continues to claim that Roundup is safe, non- carcinogenic, and non-genotoxic – misrepresentations that are consistent with the company’s cavalier approach to investigating and ensuring the safety of its products and the safety of the public at large.

The lawsuit seeks to represent people who used Roundup in agricultural or commercial contexts who have not yet developed NHL and seeks compensation to provide medical monitoring for the early diagnosis of disease.
